Following some more pictures from the Nokia training experience - already more than 15 teams have been trained and coached by agile42 in the last 6 months - were I'll try to point out some more interesting highlights...

Best Practices

Collaboration...

Collaboration is the way... Even in only 5 min. of time, after 2 Sprints and 2 Team Retrospectives the teams greatly improved their ability to self-organize and collaborate. You can't imagine how many hands are building together on the same "story" and how well synchronize the team members are sorting out pieces, putting them on top of each other to achieve the common ...

Scrum Master and Team Training @ Nokia (part 1)

The Scrum LEGO City Game is about building a nice city with Lego bricks - not a new idea till here - and doing it using as much as possible what learned during the Scrum Training. To create the sense of urgency, agile42 presents the "Product Vision" as to prove to the world that it is possible to build a LEGO city in only 20min. of working time...

Hi all, as agreed with our classes we decided to initiate a series of posts communicating the highlights of our trainings. In particular we constantly evolve the way we teach Scrum, and we make a lot of effort to make people live the best possible experience in only two days of training.

Introduction

After some years doing training, we came to the point where we really needed to find something that was good enough to put all together in a reasonable time, the theory of Scrum. Well after some reading over the internet and some inspecting & adapting, we came out ...

Thanks to the support of our users (see the discussion group thred http://groups.google.com/group/agilo/browse_thread/thread/c119eb374b731436) which helpd in nailing down a significant number of bugs, we just released another version of Agilo for Scrum 0.6.6.

The Bug fixed:

  • Wrong calculation of Resources allocation time, while the total have been correct, in some situations the individual allocation where fractioned
  • Support for unicode characters in resources names, there was a bog avoiding to update a task containing a unicode character in one of the resource names
  • Improved stylesheet for agilo-theme.

Thanks once more for ...

Product Backlog: Requirements or Stories

One of the "assumption" that is often made, when starting to adopt Scrum, is that there will be a Product Owner and there will also be a Product Backlog. Well, it happens that the Product Backlog quality is one of the major responsible for the outcome of what the team will produce in terms of software, and is absolutely one of the most difficult things to work out. There are many problems related to having a right Backlog in place, and as you may guess there is no "one recipe" for the right Backlog, only some important ingredients to mix up in the right way ;-)

Product Backlog: Requirements or User Stories?

Hi there, spending some extra time at the airport (thanks to lovely pilot strikes) gives me the chance to write a bit about Scrum and the Product Backlog. A Product Backlog is a stack of "features" prioritized by Business Value, which means that on top of the stack there is always the most valuable item for the customer/client.

The owner of the Product Backlog is the Product Owner and as such should be the one and only authorized to make changes to the Product Backlog, given also the fact that the main responsibility ...
